Vikram had just finished his bachelor’s degree and both got themselves enrolled for Master’s in English but Vikram couldn’t complete it as he wanted to join the Army and left the university in the first year after clearing the CDS exams. It was when cupid struck them and both confessed their feelings to each other. He left the university but his heart remained there with her.
Dimple’s family wasn’t happy with their relationship. Vikram used to be away for a longer span of time due to the nature of his service but that never affected their relationship.

This is one moment which has been cherished by Dimple in her life till date. After this incident, Dimple started teasing Vikram to be pure ‘filmy’.
Though, the couple was planning to get married legally post Vikram’s return from the Kargil war but destiny had its own plans. Unfortunately, Vikram Batra died in the line of duty on July 7, 1999.
In one of the interviews, Vikram Batra’s twin brother had even revealed that around six days before Captain’s martyrdom, Dimple wanted him to dance on their wedding day to which he assured that he would definitely do that.
